Color Dare #35 - Sky, Blush, & Buttercup

Welcome to the Color Dare! Congrats to Hansi, winner of last week's Irish colors dare! Don't forget to grab your badge, Hansi!

This week's colors are primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) but tints, or pastels, of these colors:

I used a Buttercup patterned paper from Chantilly. You can visit my blog for more details about my card.

Lesson: Tints are what you get when white is added to a color. You get a lighter shade of that color. It is also called a pastel. Pastels are great for babies and Easter. We only have about a week until Easter, so it's time to get those baskets, cards, and scrapbook layouts made!

Here are some beautiful projects by our wonderful design team:
Now it's your turn! Create a project using the featured colors, post a picture of it on your blog, then link your blog post up here. Make sure to include a link to us in your post. Please read the complete rules on our sidebar. Have fun!

Color Dare #33 - Use any 2 (or more) CTMH paper packs

Welcome to Color My Heart. Thanks to everyone who played along last week with our Later Sk8r challenge. We had a great turnout. We had lots of FANTASTIC entries and choosing a winner was so hard. I had two finalists that I couldn't decide between, so DH had to flip a coin for me. It was that bad! LOL! So the winner is: Kelly Brandt! With this fabulous layout of her sons:

Kelly, don't forget to grab the Color Dare Diamond award from our sidebar. (PS my other choice was Lalia Harris.)

Our challenge for this week is a little bit different and a lot fun! Choose any 2 CTMH paper packs and use them on your project. These can be current or retired. The goal is to get you to think outside the box, get creative, and realize the potential of CTMH paper.
My card uses a current paper pack, For Always & a retired one, Dotty for You. I used a Mojo Monday sketch for this card. Check out my blog for all the details.

We have two guest designers this week! They are both wonderfully talented women. First up we have Sara Batkin. She used Chantilly and For Always:
Next is Jody Gustafson. She used Buzz & Bumble with Surf's Up:
Our design team got really creative this week. Check out their wonderful projects and go leave them some comments:

(Chantilly & Dotty for You)
(Roxie & For Always)
 (Elemental, Roxie, For Always, Clementine)
(Avonlea & Stella)
You do NOT want to see my craft room right now.  This was SOOOOO hard to get right.  That circle in the Avonlea paper was giving me fits.  Aaaack.
(Elemental & Sonoma)

(Clementine & Chantilly)
Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see all the oozing creativity from you all this week! :) Just make a project using the above guidelines, take a picture of it, post it to your blog or online gallery, and link it up here. Make sure you link back to us in your post. Please read the sidebar for our complete rules. If you don't have 2 CTMH paper packs, just use what you do have. Come as close as you can. Have lots of fun with this one!
